Think globally: Peace Corps recruiter visiting campus this week, April

A regional recruiter for the Peace Corps will be on the MTSU campus this week and again in April with information on global service opportunities for students, faculty, staff and the campus community.

Organizers say the Peace Corps is an opportunity for participants to “return home with the experience and global perspective to stand out in a competitive job market” while making a real impact around the world.

Peace Corps logoAccording to www.peacecorps.org, the Peace Corps is a U.S. international service organization that sends Americans abroad “to tackle the most pressing needs of people around the world,” with Peace Corps volunteers not only working at the grassroots level in international communities but also returning home a broader perspective of the world around them.

The Peace Corps’ mission includes helping people of interested countries meet their need for trained men and women and promoting a better understanding between Americans and people they serve in other countries.

The recruiter’s visit to MTSU is being sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts, Career Development Center and the University Honors College.
